Welcome to The Cromarty Arts Trust

We are based in the beautiful Highland town of Cromarty, on the Black Isle.

Our goals are to promote and embrace the arts, education, environment, history of the Highlands, and the conservation of buildings of historical or architectural importance.

Outside Track Summer School

24 July 2016 - 29 July 2016


Welcome to a wonderful week of tuition, concerts, ceilidhs and craic in the Scottish Highlands, hosted by The Outside Track at the Old Brewery, Cromarty.                                         
Participants will receive group and individual tuition in their chosen instrument (harp, fiddle, accordion, flute/whistle and guitar), plus enjoy group singing and stepdance workshops. By keeping the numbers very low – only max 6 participants per tutor, individual needs can be attended to, and personal focus given.

 

Teaching will be a combination of tradition and technique tailored to suit the participant level, with time to address both technical issues such as improving dexterity, left hand coordination, etc, alongside traditional elements - ornamentation, tempos, rhythm, and of course, lots of time to learn new tunes.

 

There will be classes every morning from 10am until 1pm, then masterclasses, vocal sessions and stepdance workshops in the afternoon. In the evenings we will have informal sessions, a ceilidh, a student concert and a concert by The Outside Track.

Residents will have accommodation, full board and all tuition and evening activities at Cromarty Old Brewery included in the course price.

Artists Residencies

In the past we have hosted a series of residencies for artists and musicians and currently we provide studio space and a gallery space which can accommodate visual arts exhibitions, theatrical and musical events. One of the main priorities of the Cromarty Arts Trust is to promote educational links between Cromarty and the art world.

We welcome enquiries for conferences and special events particularly of a cultural nature.

Cromarty Arts Trust has commissioned pieces of public art and is always seeking to find ways of developing projects that will increase opportunities for Cromarty and local artists.

 

 

WEDDINGS

Contact us if you would like to enquire about hiring the Stables as a wedding venue.  We can help with staff to manage the day and we can provide the names of recommended caterers who we know will do a good job for you.  See this page for more information.
